The Gauteng Department for Roads and Transport has advised motorists to use alternative routes and not to attempt to drive on the closed section of the R55 Quagga road.
The provincial department said a short section of R55 Quagga road (northbound) between the Second and Third Avenue near Laudium is closed for traffic as its road surface continues to deteriorate due to a sinkhole.
“As from Monday traffic will be detoured with two southbound lanes converted into dual carriageway. This detour is anticipated to be in effect for the foreseeable future,” the provincial department said in a statement.
Motorists are advised to use alternative routes and not to attempt to drive on the closed section of the road as it can collapse at any time.
